Volunteering Project

Our partners at Alpert Jewish Family Service are collecting food for vulnerable individuals and families. Here is how it works:

  1. Collect food to donate. Food should be Kosher; currently dated/note expired, unopened, and non-perishable. Please do not include beef, chicken or pork ingredients.
  2. Once you’re ready, call 561.684.1991 and let the receptionist know you want to drop off a food donation.
  3. The receptionist will provide directions on where to bring your donation.
  4. Donation forms will be on a table at the drop-off site. The table is sanitized before and after each donation. Leave your generous food donation, and you are done!

Our community’s synagogues are offering meaningful and accessible opportunities to observe the High Holidays as we welcome a New Year.
